Chiharu Shiota

Born in Osaka Prefecture in 1972. Lives in Berlin.
Confronting fundamental human concerns like life and death, Shiota explores questions such as "What does it mean to be alive?" and "What is existence?" in large-scale installations that make use of a variety of media including sculptural elements, photography, and video. In 2007, she was awarded the Ministry of Education in the Art Encouragement Prize for her solo exhibition "From in Silence," held at Kanagawa Prefectural Hall. She has held solo shows at the Museum of Art, Kochi (2013), Marugame Genichiro-Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art (2012), Casa Asia (Spain, 2012), and the National Museum of Art, Osaka, Japan (2008) among others. She has also participated in countless international exhibitions such as the Kyiv International Biennale of Contemporary Art (Ukraine), Art Setouchi (Japan), Aichi Triennale (Japan), Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art (Russia), International Biennial of Contemporary Art of Seville (Spain), Gwangju Biennale (South Korea), and Yokohama Triennale (Japan). She was also named Japan Cultural Envoy by the Agency for Cultural Affairs in 2012 and visited Australia in this capacity.

The problem is not to free ourselves from illusions. 
The problem is free ourselves from situations which demand illusions.

There was always a way to ride...

They were always horses coming...
There was always a way to ride...
And plenty of love to soothe...
